Graduation Rates

The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, requires institutions to publish their graduation/completion rates. The information below is provided in accordance with the federal Student Right-to-Know Act.

When reviewing this information, please be aware of the following items:

  • This is the graduation rate required for disclosure and/or reporting purposes under Student Right-to-Know Act.
  • It is calculated as the total number of completers within 150% of normal time divided by the revised adjusted cohort.
  • The "cohort" used as the denominator of this rate is the number of students entering the institution as full-time, first-time, degree/certificate-seeking, undergraduate students in a particular year (cohort).
Graduation Rate for the Cohort entering in: Number of Students in the Cohort Six-year Graduation Rate
2004 193 36%
